These drop biscuits probably aren’t what you grew up eating (especially if you mainly ate canned biscuits like me), but they can satisfy a craving for bread. Enjoy them with soup or for breakfast in an egg sandwich or grain-free Eggs Benedict.

What makes these biscuits different?

These biscuits are too good to be true. HONESTLY! I no longer miss traditional buttermilk biscuits made with wheat flour. Almond flour is the leading player, but Cheddar cheese puts these on my A-list.

Greek yogurt keeps them tender and flaky. Since I make my own Greek yogurt, I try to add it to recipes whenever I can.

How to portion drop biscuits:

Raw almond flour and Greek yogurt bread in the form of biscuits.

Because it’s easiest to portion these out with an ice cream scoop, they are similar to drop biscuits. If you wet your fingers, you can tap them down just a little to make a smooth top so they will cook more evenly. But don’t smash them too much.

  1. Paula, I am definitely trying these. I love cheese biscuits, and biscuits in general, but gave them up long ago. Thanks for this recipe!

    1. Hi Becky,
      Hope you like them. They are definitely easy.

    This looks so yummy! Do you know what the carb count is?

    1. Hi Jenny,
      Based on 16 biscuits per recipe, there are 3.4 grams of carbs per biscuit. I added a recipe analysis to the post in case you have other nutritional questions.

    This is the best recipe I have come across for gluten free, low carb biscuits. I live the cheddar cheese flavor; it smells so good when I repeat them in the toaster. I have modified the recipe to make a blueberry scone. I use mozzarella cheese, stevia and blueberries. I have also made cinnamon chip.
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Allison,
      Your variations sound delicious. I agree with you about the toaster. Thanks for sharing.

  5. 5 stars
    I made these this morning. They are a little crumbley but very tasty.

    1. Hi Dina,
      Thank you for the 5-star rating.

      One thing you might try is shredding the butter. I find biscuits made with almond flour tend to be crumbly because there is no gluten to hold it all together. The cheese helps.
